Characteristic Of Fever In People With Corona
Hello doc, I want to ask about the characteristics of fever when coronavirus. Does it happen continuously or can it ebb and flow? When I put my hand on my forehead it feels hot but according to the mother or relative it is only warm, this feeling of heat usually occurs when I wake up or when I want to sleep, the body feels normal even when the body is exercised so that sweating actually feels no heat. During this time not feel cold chills when the body feels hot. Is this purely due to worry? thank you

COVID-19 or Corona virus infection has 3 main symptoms such as fever, cough, and shortness of breath. Symptoms appear after 2-14 days after exposure.
